For the anxious, the fearful, the questioning:

Let the panic and fears that simmer at the edges of your heart be tempered.
May warm hands hold, caress and massage away your worries,
Smooth your jagged edges, work and mould them into the Whole:
May you feel love.

May you feel love and find the place where love lies:
Where it’s still,
Where it’s safe,
Where it’s sure.
Close your door to the insistent world.

Find your sanctuary, bask in the warmth of love,
Build its fire and let it glow,
Let it sing,
Let love be your declaration and act only with love because
Love is peace.

Let there be love.

Let there be peace.
